There is only one favorite, and that’s Wisconsin. The Badgers won the league by multiple games over Maryland, finishing 16-2 in a major conference. That’s very hard to do. Wisconsin lost one of its games to Maryland, and the other was to Rutgers on an evening when Frank Kaminsky, the team’s best player and a player of the year (Naismith Award) candidate, was out of the lineup. Wisconsin is 28-3, a team worthy of contending for the Final Four and the national championship. Only a few teams are really equipped to go all the way, not just make the Final Four.

Wisconsin is one of them. The Badgers are disciplined at both ends of the court. They are long. They are powerful. They have a healthy Kaminsky, who is slicing up opposing defenses. This team can shoot threes. It can take opponents off the dribble. It has post players who can post up and play with their backs to the basket, or who can face the basket if they feel they need to. There’s almost unlimited versatility on this team, the one knock being that point guard Traevon Jackson probably won’t be able to play in this tournament because of an injury which has cost him almost all of this season.

Sleepers/Longshots

There’s a chance for Michigan State to make a move at this tournament, and also for Ohio State. These are the two most successful Big Ten tournament teams – they have won more than any others, and they have strong coaches who know how to get more out of their players at tournament time. No one is expecting Michigan State and Ohio State to win this tournament against Wisconsin, but plenty of people would not be surprised if the Spartans or Buckeyes gave Wisconsin a real fight.
